The Viper Elite is the best value swimskin for the money.
ROKA built this swimskin to bring high performance at a more accessible price point. The Viper Elite compresses your body and streamlines your shape in the water, reducing form drag. It is faster than other swimskins, a tri suit, or a tri top/bottom combo, and it comes off quickly in T1.
The Viper Elite swimskin is USAT and WTC legal and contains the exact same design features of the Viper Pro, differing only in fabric: instead of a premium stretch-woven material, they use a premium knit fabric from a leading Italian manufacturer, the exact same fabric used in competitors' top-of-the-line suits that cost $100 more. This fabric is lightweight, has a hydrophobic Teflon® coating, and offers excellent compression.
Like the Viper Pro, the Viper Elite has high performance bonded seam construction and hidden stitch reinforcement. ROKA uses the same folded seam at the leg as they do with the Viper Pro, to prevent "sausage legs" caused by elastic bands with silicone grippers.
If you have a non-wetsuit race on your calendar, the ROKA Viper Elite is a must-have for your arsenal.
